Not to sound like those cheesy ads for pseudo-designer body sprays, but it's true -- if you like our Lavender & Herbs fragrance or Sage, Sweetgrass & Cedar, you'll love Lavender & Cedar. Floral-woody top notes of lavender essential oil open the fragrance, along with natural oils of cedarleaf and rosemary. The theme continues with pure lavandin and cedarwood oils in the middle, leading to a sweet, earthy drydown thanks to essential oil of patchouli and a touch of musk. Flashpoint: 179º F. NOTE OF SPECIAL INTEREST: If you, as I, cherish your woollen garments and hate moths, try adding a capful of this fragrance to the rinse water when you wash woolly goodies. The lingering aroma -- besides being unappealing to moths -- is sheer heaven! Don't let me give you the impression that Lavender & Cedar is just for ski sweaters.
Here's a terrific men's blend:
Day at the Spa (masculine version)
2 parts Sweet Cakes Sapmoss (type) Fragrance
1 part Sweet Cakes Lavender & Cedar Fragrance
Ooh la la, a day at the spa! This blend takes an already great fragrance (Sapmoss) and kicks it up a notch! Though you could use Lavender Breeze or lavender essential oil, the Lavender & Cedar gives the Sapmoss a cool, woody lift that is very masculine. While "Day at the Spa" may seem a little strong and too 'lavender-y' in the bottle, the final result in M&P soap, lotion, or shampoo/shower gel is a clean, woody, uplifting fragrance!
